ED arrests TMC’s Anubrata Mondal in cattle smuggling case

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday arrested senior Trinamool Congress leader Anubrata Mondal in a cattle smuggling case following a marathon interrogation at the Asansol Correctional Home where he is being held, agency officials said.

He was detained by the CBI in the same case earlier in August and is in pre-trial detention.

The CBI investigates the criminal aspect of the cattle smuggling case, while the ED investigates the money laundering.

ED sources said the agency will now seek custody of Mondal.

The central service questioned Mondal in the penitentiary after his daughter Sukanya Mondal said during the interrogation “his father knew about all financial accounts and transactions”.

The ED had already questioned Sukanya at his office in Delhi in connection with the cattle smuggling scam.

The CBI had previously arrested Mondal’s former bodyguard, Sehgal Hossain, and also named him as the main defendant in an indictment filed by the CBI. Subsequently, the ED had taken Hossain into custody.
